Race Acephali
Cult rank None
Notes A strange race of humanoids that completely lack any form of head or neck. The acephali’s facial features are located instead across its chest and abdomen meaning that these creatures cannot wear any form of clothing or armour across these areas. Acephali are primitive herders and shepherds occupying hilly terrain. They make crude stone huts and cabins, but prefer natural caves when they can be found. They are a surly, but not necessarily aggressive race, which prefers to keep its own company. Most sapients find the lack of a head extremely disturbing making communi­cation with acephali tense at the best of times. Given the vulnerability of their chest and abdominal regions acephali prefer ranged weapons and try to avoid melee combat. They are excellent slingers and archers. Some acephali carry a spe­cially crafted heater with an eye-slit carved above the boss allowing for the chest and abdomen to be protected with passive blocking whilst the free arm is used to wield the sling.
